- After the beginning of school rules and routines are practiced and mostly learned, I model how to get into a group or with a partner to practice.
- Students will get a partner close to their level and the cards they are working on and sit together in the classroom.
- They will take turns being the teacher and flash the words while the other says them. If there is a word that they don't know, they raise their hands and I'll help them. Later, they'll use the ask 3 before me rule.
- Once they master this way of practice, I'll bring out the sight board game boards, then the sight word fishing game, then the popcorn word game, etc.
